momstown Victoria Tales for Tots Welcomes Local Storyteller, Jennifer Ferris

Today at momstown Victoria Tales for Tots we read  "The Very Hungry Bear" by Nick Bland, about a bear who makes a deal with a polar bear. The illustrations are bright and whimsical, and the rhymes and the bolded words help the reader to bring the story to life for young listeners. This is a wonderful book that parents and kids will love to read out loud together!

We also welcomed Jennifer Ferris to our Tales for Tots program! Jennifer has been active for 20 years in schools, at community events, nature sanctuaries, schools and festivals. Through her work and volunteer activities in the community she has used story to engage and entertain pre-schoolers and their parents. This year she has been busy as the president of Storytellers of Canada - Conteurs du Canada but always finds time to tell a story. 

We are so pleased that Jennifer will be sharing her stories with us each month, and today she engaged our group of parents, toddlers and preschoolers with delightful stories about a little bear cub to accompany our book! 

After story time we did a polar bear craft together! We used tissue paper to make our bears fluffy and put stars in the night sky. 

Congratulations to the lucky winner of our book! momstown Tales for Tots sponsored by Scholastic Canada is on the third Wednesday of every month from 10-11 am at Chapters Victoria!

  1. Jennifer Ferris is a fantastic, engaging storyteller. I have the opportunity to enjoy two events with her. Kids and adults had a great time listening and watching her tell stories :)
